Netanyahu: Israel is within weeks of complete victory with the start of the Rafah operation

Even if the ceasefire is delayed, the expected start of the Israeli attack on Rafah will put Israel “within weeks of complete victory.” This was stated by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on Sunday, during an interview with the American CBS News channel.

“Complete victory is within reach, not in a few months but in a few weeks, when we begin the process,” Netanyahu said. He considers Rafah, located on the border with Egypt, the “last stronghold” of Hamas, and previously announced that he would launch a ground attack to defeat the Palestinian Islamic movement and free the Israeli hostages.

The Prime Minister received a lot of criticism from the international community because of this. According to the United Nations, there are still approximately 1.5 million Palestinians in the city, having fled other parts of the Gaza Strip.

“If we reach an agreement (on a ceasefire), it will be postponed in some way, but it will happen,” Netanyahu said of the attack. He said that he met on Sunday with officials from his army who will propose a “double plan” to “evacuate (civilians) and dismantle the remaining Hamas brigades.”

US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said earlier in the day that “common ground” had been found in recent negotiations on a possible ceasefire in Gaza and the release of hostages.

Netanyahu said about those negotiations, “We will achieve the progress that we all want” if “Hamas backs down from its stupid demands and returns to reality.” He added, “We are all working on this agreement. We want it, I want it, because I want to free the remaining hostages, but I cannot promise that we will get there.”

Washington: Reaching “common ground” for a ceasefire in Gaza

Recent negotiations on a potential ceasefire in Gaza have found “common ground.” This was stated by Jake Sullivan, US National Security Advisor, on Sunday.

“It is true that representatives of Israel, the United States, Egypt and Qatar met in Paris and agreed on the broad outlines of a possible agreement on the release of the hostages and a temporary ceasefire,” Sullivan told CNN.

But the security advisor did not want to go into details “because this still needs to be negotiated.” According to Sullivan, indirect discussions with Hamas are necessary, because they must ultimately agree to the release of the hostages. He added, “This work is underway. We hope that we will reach a point in the coming days where there is already a strong and final agreement on this issue.”
